Advalue is organised into four sections, according to where the advertising effect is to be seen:
* Company value effects
* Business performance effects
* Customer effects
* Brand effects
In addition, there is a brief introductory section and each chapter is prefaced by a short executive summary describing 'the argument in brief'.
The individual authors are leading experts in their fields drawn from the advertising industry, the client community and the academic world.
